Speculum Examination and Pap Test module

The Speculum Examination and Pap Test module on the PELVIC Mentor training simulator provides self-guided step-by-step practice for cervix examination as well as a pap test, using true-to-life speculum and pap smear tools.  This hybrid model combines physical and virtual simulation training.
